A new report from the National Transportation Safety Board pinpoints poor weather conditions and a lack of recent training as the cause of the North Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, plane crash that killed a couple and their four-year-old granddaughter last July as they were returning home to Kannapolis, North Carolina, from a trip to the beach.
The 54-year-old pilot was attempting to navigate a Piper PA-28 Cherokee around a thunderstorm on the night of July 14, 2010, when he crashed into Creekside Mobile Home Park, located in coastal South Carolina. The crash started a fire that injured three people on the ground.
“The combination of a dark dusk sky, multiple cloud ceilings, precipitation, and the distraction of maneuvering around a large convective cell (thunderstorm) would have been challenging for a pilot with limited recent actual instrument experience,” said the NTSB.
Though the pilot had had his license for 19 years, he had only partially completed updated instrument training for the Piper PA-28 Cherokee, which he was renting.
Do you think that pilots should be allowed to rent planes if they haven't had recent training?
